2020 Unsung Heroes Nomination


In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week in May, we will once again spotlight the amazing things happening in our schools thanks to the professionals who are our Unsung Heroes.

We are looking to feature professionals that the public may not know much about; our colleagues who are guidance counselors, psychologists, social workers, home and school visitors, certified school nurses, speech pathologists, PT or OT professionals, librarians and others.

To nominate an Unsung Hero, simply answer the questions below. From these submissions, four members will be chosen to be featured by our region leadership team. The four winners and their inspiring stories will be spotlighted in early spring. Once posted, the public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite. Each finalist will receive the recognition they deserve and win a prize.

There is no limit on the number of names you may submit. Submissions are due by 5 p.m. on Sunday, February 23.
